As part of National Volunteers’ Week (1-7 June), the CQI would like to say thank you to all the
people who give their time to help run our boards, committees and
community groups.

Our volunteers do vital work in supporting other quality professionals and ensuring the CQI remains a strong, powerful voice.

The CQI recognises that volunteers are an integral part of the organisation who support the CQI to fulfil its mission, the Royal Charter and deliver its strategy.

We currently have 191 volunteers working across our branches, Special Interest Groups, Membership Council, and our Board of Trustees.

Volunteers can benefit the
CQI by:

• Supporting the CQI to achieve its mission, strategy and to fulfil the Royal Charter;

• Increasing CQI’s engagement with its members;

• Giving sector specific context to the CQI strategy. 

The benefits of volunteering include:

• Meeting like-minded people;

• Gaining valuable CPD opportunities;

• Engaging with local organisations;

• Career progression. 

Suzanne Hill, Secretary of Derby and Nottingham Branch & Vice-Chair Membership Council, said: “By volunteering, I can actively contribute to the CQI’s direction and governance. For me, it is especially important to encourage and mentor the next generation of quality professionals to achieve professional recognition and to help broaden their experiences beyond their current education and employment opportunities.” 

You can now volunteer for our new mentoring platform, and we also have one-off volunteering opportunities.
